There are many different legends about dragons. They're in our mythology, our video games, our fiction, our history. They come in different styles and flavors. They're fascinating creatures, to be sure. But I personally feel like I don't know enough about them, so I'd like to learn a bit more about them.

I was advised that this may not qualify for this forum since dragons are considered myth, but dragons are still animals, so I think they should count.

Seishiro Leonhart : I figure this thread might be something you could contribute to easily, being a dragon and all. :3

For some reason I thought about making an ask anything about dragons for me, but seems like I currently won't be getting one. XD

I am quite curious as to why there are seemingly countless myths with dragons that spreading across different cultures. Do you know why dragons are prevalent in ancient myth?

Sidewinder : As to how many different myths that appears about dragons, I can't really say it for sure, but you can say it is quite similar to aliens, many different myths appear, but nobody can really prove  them.

As to why dragons are prevalent in ancient myth, I don't  know really know, maybe because on ancient times they believed dragons would exist compared to today,, but if you want a right answer, I don't know.

I think that dragons could have been a living animal. It is not an impossible thing. If you are interested in dragons you should watch the documentary dragons a fantasy made real. It is a pretty interesting documentary and a must see for anyone that loves dragons.

Sword legion : This video doesn't really discuss dragons. It discusses dinosaurs and tries to liken them to dragons. They're not the same by any stretch of the imagination.

sonikku :

Well, I think that many cultures have ledgands of
dragons becuase of the dinosaurs.

The word dinosuar didn't appear in the dictionary until the 1800s (?)
I believe that the later half of the vid covers the subject much better.
I'm pretty sure that dragons are just dinosaurs based on the historical accounts
of Greece, and Rome. Alexander the Great talked about how dragons scared
his soldiers when he went into Russia. You want to talk more about it?

Sword legion : To be honest, no. I get a strong feeling talking about it will turn into a religious debate, and I would really like to avoid that, especially since this is not the forum for religious debate.

So what kind of dragons are your favorite?  I like scaly ones with multiple heads that can all breathe fire!

I love how dragons are portrayed in Eragon and Avatar. It's too bad that if dragons did exist today, they would not last very long as humans would drive them extinct.
The coolest dragons breathe blue fire. Red fire is for wimpier dragons!

EideticMemory : Well, the only difference in the fire they breathe, based on a bit of research I did on how fire is colored, would be based on the type of minerals they consume to fuel their fire. So a dragon's strength in your eyes is based on what mineral they eat?

And yeah, mighty as dragons are, I feel like they probably wouldn't last against our technology sadly. .-.

sonikku : Fire is also colored based on temperature. Whereas red flames tend to be 800°C, blue flames are 1400°C. I think that dragons that can blow fire hot enough to melt rock are cooler than dragons that can't. Blue flames also look cooler. Sorry about being unclear.

EideticMemory : Perhaps there may be a correlation between the two? The mineral they eat may also determine how hot their fire burns. But I'm just theorycrafting at that point. What I'd love to know is how a dragon that breathes blue flames is able to keep that temperature for the full duration of their flame breath, and how hot that fire is before they breathe it.

sonikku : I thought about that after I made the post, so I agree. Certain minerals burn at higher temperatures in chemistry, so maybe that may play a role.

My theory is that certain dragons eat certain minerals because they can give enough heat to melt them. Not the other way around with the mineral eaten determining the heat, since any dragon would then be able to blow the hottest flames. 

About your question, maybe the fire starts off red, then gets blue as the fire gets hotter. So before they breathe it, it doesn't exist. Only speculation.

Haha, I'm here to revive this thread as the TdV has started!

I like dragons, they are my favourite mythical creature. 
EideticMemory : That might be true, or it's in their family.

I find it interesting that in many Western stories the dragons are depicted as evil while in many Eastern stories they are depicted as good creatuers.
